A nor’easter moving into Massachusetts delivered high winds late Tuesday and was expected to bring heavy rain and possible flooding overnight through Wednesday morning that could complicate morning commutes, the National Weather Service said.
As the storm barreled up the East Coast, the high winds and rain were intensifying overnight and likely won’t die down until Wednesday afternoon, according to the weather service.
“For the Boston area, around midnight to 2 In the morning is when it will start to get to the height of the storm,” Andrew Loconto, a meteorologist at the weather service office in Norton, said in an interview. “In terms of the rainfall, the timing should be similar. . . . There will be a period after midnight overnight when it’s coming down pretty heavy.”
